I would love to see the Warfield '80 run as well. Dead Set and Reckoning were 2 discs I listened to a lot when I was getting into the Dead, so of course I have a fondness for that era. But for whatever reason don't have too many actual shows from that period now.

I think that it's been said that the reason there's a lack of the Fall 1980 shows is that they were recording the run to make an album - which turned out to be Dead Set and Reckoning, but someone decided to tape over many of the recordings rather than buy new tape. That sucks for us, but who knows why they did that? Were they short on spending money during this time, or just putting it up their nose? Maybe they honestly thought that some of the shows weren't very worthy of saving in the vault, so they just erased them... that's a hard one to believe.

Anyways, I'll put in another vote for a 1976 Box set.
